Still haven't answered why Nada lost to those players now and not rank 100s in 2006-8.

Your theory is simply that all players are "better than evvveerrr".

So you are becoming a convert to Neo-backhand then? Whistle

I've already said that I think his BH and return of serve are better than ever. Neo-BH is a bit over the top. Cool

Fed in 2 tonight, unless a TB, then in 3.

Fed to rush the first set, then Stan to fold mentally after some line call or something in second set and all done in 2.

yes because we are dealing with a guy who can tire quickly.

Otherwise it would be Fed in 2. Pretty easy.....but we never know with a 35yo at the end of a tournament.

I've never used this adjective to describe Federer, but his BH is getting ridiculous!

When Fed plays like that, it reminds me McEnroe 84 where all his shots were hit in the middle of his frame and dominating everyone with ease.....except that Fed is not facing a bunch of amateurs playing with alluminium racquets.

Stan stands so far behind on returns.
I'd like to see him take a BH return from the baseline, like Fed.

A bit unlucky for Stan but Fed was the better player in that set...just!

Impressive tennis from those 2. Very hard and clean hitting from both sides from both players.

In 2006, he won 3 slams and reached the final of another, when Nadal was also at his best.  We'll talk when he does that again. Eh Winking  Thumbs Up

Fed has dropped a few levels down....even though he broke...thanks to a poor game from Stan.

 Nadal and Federer are from the same era.  Laver is not.  More false equivalencies.

Yeah, a good 3 set match should me 1:30h same as a good movie.

Best of 5, no more then 2:30h, just like an Epic movie.

Don't care for 5-6h matches.

I am still not convinced Fed can win much this year. He tires so quickly!

Maybe it is the heat as Stan seems affected too.
